Xbox 360 not connecting to network - IP Address Error

Hi,

I'm trying to connect my xbox360 to my network/internet, but am having some problems. My setup is as follows.

---> = Wired connection, ~~~> Wireless connection

Internet ---> DLink Xtreme N Gaming Router (DLG-4500) ~~~> Dlink Xtreme N Duo Wireless N Access Point (DAP-1522) ---> Xbox 360

When testing my XBOX Live connection, it says connection failed, and when I select "More Info", it says "IP Address Error ... Can't obtain an IP address from your router or modem."

I've tried following the various instructions given, but nothing seems to be working. Can anyone help me with this? I also wanted to note that the DAP-1522 has three settings; Bridge, Auto, and AP (Access point, I'm assuming?). Which of these should I set it to?

I think the problem may lie in connecting the two routers. I've reset the DAP-1522 completely, and tried connecting it with the DLG-4500 using the sync button on the side, but it doesn't seem to work - just keeps flashing. Can anyone offer any help?

The DAP-1522 has to be configured to connect to the wireless network that the DLG-4500 offers.[quote]I think the problem may lie in connecting the two routers.[/quote]Keep in mind the DAP-1522 isn't a router, it's either a bridge or an AP. In Bridge mode, the wireless antennas are used only to server as a Client connecting to another wireless network. In AP mode, the wired connection goes to the router and the wireless is used to create a wireless network for other devices to use.
